    The vibes at Barcocina are amazing. Our server, Eric, was very attentive and kind, and he also engaged with the group and was a lot of fun! The music was great and the ambience makes it hard not to have a great time. I do wish the tacos were a little bit more affordable, like maybe $12-13, as opposed to $15, but the food is really good and the vegan options are excellent. I would definitely like to come back!

    I love this place and have been many many times. I’m not sure what the issue was on Mother’s Day, but they had no hot coffee and no iced tea (and the server wasn’t overly nice about telling us they didn’t have it) which I thought was very unusual for brunch. I asked for milk and sweetener for my cold brew and was brought two packets of sugar and no sweetener which I also thought was odd. We wanted to put specific amounts in two different credit cards and were told the only option was to split it down the middle. It was just a very negative vibe compared to other times I’ve been there.

    Tacos were not that good, they look pretty but the meat was not seasoned at all and they were really bland. Also expensive for not being very good. The guacamole was great, though. I’d recommend going for drinks and apps but that’s it.

    Pre-Covid Barcocina was definitely better. They need to bring back the taco/app bar in addition to the brunch deal. Also, the drinks were not cold which was a bummer.
